Now Showing: DJANGO & DJANGO 2

With Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED in theatres now what better time to familiarize yourself with the original Sergio Corbucci film? In 1966 this was considered one of the most violent films around and was refused classification in Britain until 1993, and banned outright in Sweden. It currently has a 91% rating on RottenTomatoes and has been called one of the greatest of all Spaghetti Westerns. It is claimed to have over 100 unofficial sequels (although only roughly 31 have been counted) but in reality only has one official sequel DJANGO 2 which was released in 1987 with Franco Nero returning as the title character. You will find both films free to watch below.

DJANGO: "A mysterious man trudges into town dragging a mud-stained coffin behind him. This man is Django (Franco Nero). After he saves Maria (Loredana Nusciak) from certain death, Django finds himself in the middle of a war between Mexican revolutionaries and a band of sadistic racists led by the fanatical Major Jackson (Eduardo Fajardo). In the face of overwhelming odds, Django has a plan: to exact revenge while pitting enemy against enemy"

DJANGO 2: DJANGO STRIKES AGAIN: "In this story, Django (Franco Nero) has spent a decade in a monastery, trying to live down his violent past as a gunman. However, Django is forced to renounce his vows when word gets back to him that a villainous slave trader, Orlowsky (Christopher Connelly), has kidnapped his daughter. Enraged and determined to bring the abductors to justice, Django digs up his old Gatling gun and once again begins cutting a swath through the countryside as he seeks to free his daughter"
